"You're not kidding" Can this mean "What you're saying is true" or "I agree with that" in a certain situation?Yeah, Jura. But it hasn't came across as literal in the situation and then wicked mental translation kept intruding in my brain. I agree, 엘리자베스. Thanks a lot, Neal!

The exclamation "You're not kidding!" expresses that someone is in agreement about something. For instance: A: "That was the biggest ice-cream I've ever eaten" B: "You're not kidding! I thought I would never finish mine. This is different to "You're kidding!", which is essentially an expression of dismay or disbelief, as in: Person A. Guess what! You have just won a million dollars! Person B. "You're kidding! I've never won anything before!

People usually say this when they are told something fantastic. Yes it means, is that true? Example: Person A. Guess what! You have just won a million dollars! Person B. "You're not kidding?"
